Highland Natural Resources - where is the TR1 you lying spivs?

Published 315 days ago

Back on 15 June Highland Natural Resources (HNR) announced what was in essence a covert placing with a spiv share flipper. It was dressed up as something rather different but the failure of that spiv to issue a TR1 shows this laughable pretence up for what it is.

CAP-XX – “secured new orders for automotive applications”. Hmmm…

Published 371 days ago

Having previously written in March in a sceptical vein, I note shares in the company which modestly describes itself as “a world leader in the design and manufacture of thin, flat supercapacitors and energy management systems”, CAP-XX (CPX) currently trade higher, at around 5p, on the back of an announcement which begins with that the company “is pleased to announce that it has secured new orders for its supercapacitor solutions for both passenger vehicle and heavy vehicle automotive applications”.

Ten Alps – “Disposal” announcement not exactly a game-changer!

Published 380 days ago

Having recently gone in just over two months from being “on track to generate a full year profit for the first time in a number of years and to continue momentum into the medium term” to having “continued to sustain losses in certain parts of its publishing operations… these continued losses are likely to result in the group not being profitable for the year as a whole”, Ten Alps (TAL) sought to somewhat reassure with that it “is in advanced stages of discussion on the disposal of certain areas of its publishing business”. We now have an announcement of “the disposal of the trade of Grove House Publishing Limited, one of its publishing subsidiaries, for a cash consideration of”

Golden Saint Resources raises £400,000 to keep paying crony capitalists but where are its fecking results?

Published 380 days ago

Last year Golden Saint Resources (GSR) waited until it got a placing away in late May to announce its piss poor results. It needed extra cash to satisfy the auditors that it was solvent, let alone a going concern. This year it seems that broker Cornhill could not bring itself to stiff its clients again - hats off to Frangos and team for showing some integrity. But bucket shop- SVS Securities has no such qualms and has raised £400,000 gross ( £371,000 net of fees to crony capitalists) at 0.07p. So I guess we can now see the results soon.

Highlands Natural Resources: Now you are contradicting yourselves - where has the money gone?

Published 383 days ago

The bullshit from this over-ramped jam tomorrow AIM piece of crap continues but with the shares tumbling to 53p on the latest RNS fantasy perhaps the penny is dropping. The problem the rampers have is that they have spouted so much horseshit in a deluge of RNS releases that they are now contradicting themselves. So let's deal with Schlumberger.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast - e-Therapeutics this stinks like a pile of rotting kippers at the height of summer

Published 413 days ago

In this podcast I start with Baby Bear, Graham Neary, and why he is wrong on Fastjet (FJET). The trouble is that he is being too nice. Baby, try to remember that we bears are meant to be complete and utter bastards. I then discuss my own Greek planning woes and those of Minoan (MIN). Then it is onto e-therapeutics (ETX) and today's RNS which stinks to high heaven. This is now an A1 bargepole stock. I then cover Atlas African (AAI), Andalas (ADL) - what price the next placing?  - Hague London (HNL) and MX Oil (MXO) again what price its next placing? 0.1p looks about right to me.

Now, after a bailout which saw it surrender any assets worth owning, Jim is at it again and today he has updated his punters on a deal in Mexico which is related party although Jim neglects to remind punters of this fact.

blur Group – ‘Contract win’ seemingly sparks further delusion

Published 421 days ago

Perennial cash-burning machine, sorry “Enterprise Services Platform & Marketplace”, blur (BLUR) “is pleased to announce the signing of a two year contract with a FTSE 250 multi-channel retail group”. Apparently, this contract win “demonstrates that business leaders and large corporates are increasingly acknowledging the need to prioritize their unmanaged, indirect business services spend and recognize that blur's platform offers an efficient and agile solution to drive new efficiencies within indirect spend”. Hmmm…

Nakama Group – “Trading Update” features management-speak shite & is shite!

Apparently the first things we need to know in a “Trading Update” from recruitment group Nakama (NAK) include that “as a result of a holistic review of the business” following the September appointment of CEO Rob Sheffield, “the group has been through significant change…(including) changes to the infrastructure of the organisation”. At the end of the paragraph we are then told that “the board believes that, in order to grow the business, the restructuring and the investment are crucial to the future of the group. The effect of this is reduced profitability during the period”. Hmmm…

SeaEnergy - Let's Cut to the Chase - Its fucked

Published 481 days ago

We have for some time suggested that offshore energy services business SeaEnergy (SEA) was a bargepole stock. The company has pretended otherwise, by taking on more debt and by issuing infuriating releases about how shareholders were funding management to go get pissed at black tie awards ceremonies. Today, SeaEnergy fessed up: The Sheriff & Deputy Sheriff of AIM were right all along. We usually are.

African Potash - Run for the Hills: this stinks

But here's a third Robillard company, Doltek.

Motive Television – another ramptastic announcement attempted as it scrambles to conclude refinancing

Published 561 days ago

In a September announcement I noted as ramp fodder, Motive Television (MTV) announced an intention to develop TabletTV for Apple TV. I concluded as such with the announcement being just of an “intention” to do something, not of an achievement, and the mention of “Apple” a ramptastic seven times in the 195 word announcement being preferred to the provision of any financial indications whatsoever (see HERE), and so today…

A further announcement today entitled “Trading Update, Rights Issue and Move to AIM” sees the shares currently down a further 25p at below 30p…

“Monitise (MONI) and Telefónica cloud platform agreement” Great news! What?

Red Flags at Night: Trafalgar New Homes - results with a little help from the ShareProphets Translation Service

Quite how a house builder manages to lose money in the current environment is a mystery to me. For the second consecutive year, £1.8 million market cap AIM tiddler Trafalgar New Homes plc (TRAF) has done just that, reporting a doubled £620,000 loss for the year (0.26p per share, a third of the bid price) to 31 Mar 2015 at no-one-is-watching o’clock on Friday (at 5.23pm).

I have noted on a number of occasions that fully listed CIC Gold (CICG) where the largest shareholder is Stuart Bromley’s CIC Capital is a complete and utter bargepole stock and that VSA Capital should be thoroughly ashamed for bringing this POS to the market.

AIM-listed JQW plc (JQW) – one of the Fujian four, from Fujian province in China announced its AGM result today, as well as the departure of Chief Financial Officer, Mr Kooi Wei Boon. Under normal circumstances, the FD departing out of the blue would not be taken well – and, indeed, JQW saw its shares slide 14% on the news – but given the general level of suspicion surrounding AIM-listed China frauds this is most unsettling news for anyone mad enough to be holding this stock.
